Eachine Blade 185 – The Great Forest Racer

If you’re looking for a nice racer and you like flying through trees at a high rate of speed, then you’ll definitely enjoy the Eachine Blade 185. Racers have become increasingly smaller over the last year, and Eachine has definitely kept up with that trend. In the past few months they’ve released three racers in the “200 millimeter or less” category, and each one is unique. The Assassin 180 was th...

Blade Inductrix 200

Introduction I’m the owner of an original Blade Inductrix, a small bind and fly quadcopter made by Blade Helis. The original Inductrix is a relatively small 83 mm square and a ton of fun to fly. So when I saw that Blade released a larger, faster, more powerful version of the Inductrix with brushless motors and built in FPV, I had to give it a try! Like other Blade quads, the Inductrix 200 features...

JJRC H-28

If you’re looking for a full-sized quad rotor and are shopping on a budget, then the JRC H-28 is a good choice. It’s a 350 sized quad rotor, meaning that it measures three hundred and fifty millimeters from motor to motor, or just over 13 and ¾ inches. It’s a pretty large aircraft with a lot of power and it comes with a camera mounted to a single-axis gimbal, but the camera isn’t why you should bu...

JJRC H6D

The H6D looks very enticing to someone who wants to get started with FPV flying, and JJRC has produced more inexpensive quad rotors in the past year than I care to mention. They have countless camera drones, micro drones and FPV drones on the market. They gave us the amazing X1 brushless quad that sells for just over $100, and they seem to come out with a new aircraft almost every day. Key Feature...

Hubsan X4 Camera+

Introduction The Hubsan X4 Cam Plus was supposed to be the perfect aircraft, and the manufacturers worked hard to create something new and amazing. Unfortunately, poor design choices along the way ruined the entire experience. It’s sad, because the original Hubsan X4 was a revolution – it was the first true palm-sized quad rotor and it was a sensation in the R/C world. Every time Hubsan rele...

JJRC H-29-W

The H-29 is a great little aircraft from JJRC. It’s very affordable, it’s got a lot of power, and it’s very responsive and easy to control – plus it’s fast! However, there are four different versions, ranging from 35 to 75 bucks, so picking the right one makes a big difference. If you’re in the market for a low cost quad rotor then you should check out some of the new aircraft from JJRC. The...
